Hydaburg is 32 miles from the Hollis terminal and has a population of approximately 400. Populated in the 1700s by the Haida people, Hydaburg’s community relies on their culture and still continues a close relationship to the land and sea.
With the largest Haida population in the country, Hydaburg has a grocery store, airplane float, boat harbor, church, US Post Office and a school. A totem park was built during the 1930s and the community has been restoring and replacing totems continually ever since. Totem raising is a very festive occasion and is a wonderful event to witness or take part in. Hydaburg has many traditional Haida artists, carvers and weavers.
